I hate to leave you grieving, darling
It's the only way to set us free
I know I leave you with a heart full
I can feel your pitiful plea.

Bye bye, girl, bye bye, girl, I gotta go
Your lovin', my lovin', never never grow.

You're hanging on to any straw, girl
Now you know that we're really through
You're tempting me with all your charms, girl
Let me do things you'd never do.

Bye bye, girl, bye bye, girl, I gotta go
Your lovin', my lovin', never never grow.

Bye bye, baby, bye bye.

Bye bye, girl, bye bye, girl, I gotta go
Your lovin', my lovin', never never grow.

It breaks me up to hear you crying
Your sobbing song down the phone
Make me only wanna run away, girl
From your melancholy moan.

Bye bye, girl, bye bye, girl, I gotta go
Your lovin', my lovin', never never grow.

I said bye bye, baby
Bye bye, baby, bye bye.

Bye bye, girl, bye bye, girl
Bye bye, baby, bye bye
Bye bye, girl, bye bye, girl
Bye bye, baby, bye bye.
